This is the view from my world today--from my window overlooking the front yard to be exact. The snow began falling at 2 pm yesterday afternoon and laid a nice white blanket over everything by 5:00. It continued snowing off and on throughout the night and this is what I woke up to this morning. The temperature is bitterly cold and is expected to be even colder tomorrow. Wind chills are reaching -20 to -30 degrees F.
The fun this is that they canceled school today. I am sure there were groans from parents who had to scramble around to make arrangements for children, but many cheers from kids and teachers.
The extra nice thing was that they ( the school big-wigs) called school off by 8pm last night which let me have a little more freedom in deciding what time to go to bed and what time to wake up this morning. There is nothing worse for a late owl like me than waking up early in the morning for work only to find out work has been canceled. Even if I stay in bed, it's not the same as sleeping in for the day.
Since we have only been back at school for 3 days, having this snow day isn't as exciting and refreshing as a surprise snow day in mid February after teaching 5 weeks. But...... I'll take it! And it looks like I'll take another one tomorrow. The message just came that they are calling it tomorrow too-and it is only afternoon~ Yeah! I think I am liking this new superintendent. I appreciate the advance notice.
So now I can sit back and enjoy my warm beverage, snuggle in my afgan, and do some pleasure reading.... and tomorrow the alarm clock stays off and I am sleeping in!
Maybe I will get caught up on reading all the blogs I want to read!
